Common-Sense Tips on Stray Animal Care

A pet, or domesticated animal, is usually kept mainly for the owner's enjoyment or business and not necessarily as a laboratory animal, livestock, or working animal. Today, a wide range of breeds are recognized as having a useful lifespan and are used in many aspects of animal rearing. In the United States, there are a number of breeds commonly used in companion, farms, shelters, and pet stores.

The Abyssinian cat was recognized around 1855 by the American Society for the prevention of Cruelty to Animals as the breed most likely to be free from any contagious diseases and able to sustain itself. It has retained this status in modern times and is considered one of the most prominent domestic cats in the U.S. The Abyssinian has a solid, compact body, a short, stocky tail, and large paws. Its long, tufted ears give it its distinctive look. It is said to have a sweet disposition and to be loving and affectionate. Though this is certainly an exaggerated view, the Abyssinian does make wonderful pets and show animals.

Some people may question how the law can regulate killing; however, the answer is simple. It is the responsibility of every individual, as part of the State's responsibility to ensure that an individual's pet animal is well cared for. That means that when a person responsible for another person's pet animal neglects to pay proper veterinary attention, the law becomes responsible. If someone neglects to pay veterinary attention to an animal that is a part of another person's household, the law has the power to either penalize that individual or make that animal available for adoption through a shelter. If the law cannot come to terms with the situation and there is no room for rehabilitation, then the law has the power to institute corrective measures to ensure the safety of the animals involved and to protect the public from negligent individuals who are willing to take advantage of unsuspecting pet owners.

The National Fisheries Council has created a policy called "National Standards". This policy lays down what constitutes bad breeding, excessive breeding, and neglect. According to this article 4 of the council's animal welfare policy, the following are unacceptable: the practice of breeding dogs or cats for financial gain; the practice of breeding at such high levels without regard for the health and welfare of the animals involved; and the failure to provide suitable shelter. These standards apply to all pet animals. Violations of these articles could lead to fines and even possible jail sentences.

Each member state of the United States has a Department of Agriculture (USDA). Each state establishes its own criteria for what constitutes acceptable breeding for a set number of pounds. In order for a dog or cat to be acceptable, it must weigh more than twenty-five percent of the expected weights for the breed of dog or cat in question. Furthermore, each member state of the US has a designated weight limit for breeding purposes. Some states allow breeding to occur if the animals are not registered within their jurisdiction. Others have more restrictive policies.

Many people who come to the United States do so in pursuit of a particular type of pet animal. Because of this, there are certain types of exotic animals that are illegal in most states and can result in a penalty. Examples of these include alligators, snakes, spiders, non-venomous lizards, bears, bees, coyotes, non-native species of birds and rodents, opossums, skunks, and other reptiles. However, many exotic animals that come from foreign countries are legal, depending on the laws of the country of origin.

The penalties and punishments for violating the terms of the council's Animal Welfare Act vary from state to state. A conviction under the law can result in both jail time and a large fine. Pet owners who are caught violating the act are required to register their exotic pets with the USDA and show proof of obtaining an exotic pet certificate. If you are found in violation of the council's Animal Welfare Act, you may be forced to surrender your pet animals or be fined heavily.

Some cities, such as Vancouver, Washington, have laws that ban keeping pet animals in private homes. If you choose to keep a pet animal in your home, it is important to understand that the animal will likely have to be euthanized if it is dangerous to others or if it is subject to constant abuse. Even if you have a permit to own a pet, the city may issue you a fine if you are caught abusing or neglecting the animal. If you need a guide on the best way to care for stray animals in your area, contact the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals or ASPCA.
